about pudding:


“ Real Christmas pudding must be made in some weeks before Christmas

and it must be left in coldness; the longer it is kept within reasonable

London are festively decorated where some furniture and examples of

interior of period since 1600 up to our days are exhibited. Visitors can

find out what is the foundation of such traditions as kissing under

mistle-toe and decorating of a fir-tree.


For English children Christmas appears indistinctly in October yet, at

this time they sit at the table and putting out their tonguage tips with

effort write Christmas list for Father Christmas. Shop owners sell

different thematic togs just from this moment.


In generally this is a long-standing tradition. In UK there are
